Default On Board Alerts

Does Princess Lines use any type of pager system that would alert a passenger if there was something that was going to start soon and where it is located on the ship? For example a "Not So Newlywed Game" or "Knocky Knee contest" or something along this line.

They do their morning announcements and will mention some activities during the day, but I don't recall them making an announcement before each one.

Bring a highlighter, and, each night, notate on the daily paper, you will get in your mailbox, what activity, you want to do,and where it is...makes for good bedtime reading, and, you will know how to plan your day

Thank God they gave that up making announcements during the day years ago. It's bad enough to listen to them in the morning & around noon. (especially when trapped in an elevator-)

So that said, they don't make announcements over the loud speakers anymore?

Ok..after reading Donna's post again it sounds like they still do but just not as often.

Thanks!

I seem to remember seeing games like that on NCL, not Princess.

They replay the cruise director's show on the CCTV over and over - at least in the mornings. May be a good reason to take a cell - to set reminders for yourself.

You get the Princess Patter the ship's newpaper, everyday and it tells you all about the daytime activities, the time the location and the type of activity. It also tells you about the night entertainment. It is a complete source of information.
